Venus Optics announces the new Laowa Magic Shift Converter that is designed to use with Canon/Nikon mount lenses and Sony Full Frame E-mount cameras.
A carefully designed and patented optical system in the adapter converts the Laowa 12mm f/2.8 Zero-D to a 17mm f/4 lens with +/- 10mm Shift capability without any vignetting.
Laowa Magic Shift Converter may also work with other ultra-wide angle lenses. Shipment starts from late July for Canon EF to Sony FE and Nikon AI to Sony FE will start in a few months.
Venus Optics announces Laowa Magic Shift Converter for Sony E-mount
Laowa Magic Shift Converter is an adapter specially design for the LAOWA 12mm Zero-D, to correct perspective distortion while maintaining high image quality. With the adapter, you can have absolute vertical lines rather than converging lines while shooting cityscapes! This is a super useful feature in architecture and interior photography. Check out the official video below.
LAOWA Magic Shift Converter – Features and Demo
The MSC high-quality glass elements will enlarge the image circle of the 12mm f/2.8 Zero-D from 43.2mm to 60mm in diameter and make it a 17mm f/4 lens with +/- 10mm shift capability. The camera can be rotated in a full circle, allowing a quick switch between landscape and portrait framing, or to change the shift direction.
The Laowa Magic Shift Converter is designed for Sony full-frame E-mount cameras and Canon/Nikon mount lenses. More sample images can be found on the Venus Optics website.
